Students in Sandra Bird's Intercultural Curriculum class provided art activities that related to the Indian holiday Diwali, popularly known as the "Festival of Lights."
Activities included drawing with henna patterns, creating Diwali tin can lanterns and participating in a group Rangoli drawing. While attending the event, students donned Indian clothing and were able to watch traditional and contemporary Indian dances, receive henna adornment on their hands and enjoy Indian cuisine.
